"Sufficient cooling"

So basically this thing is what has eaten up all my money for the past 3 years.

The CPU is running at 5.2GHz. I delidded it with a box cutter like a maniac but it survived somehow even tho one corner got a little bent Emoji
The hyper 212 evo clearly isn't sufficient enough and I should really just build a custom loop, but I don't have an extra 700€ to spend on a loop now. :)))))))))

The WD blue HDDs are in RAID 0 btw

Cable management was a thing at some point but after I put the sidepanel back on I just stopped caring.

My NVMe SSD is not properly mounted Q_Q

I haven't even cleaned it in a while and now I'm publishing it on the internet Emoji
